Christmas Recipe Ideas!

Merry Christmas week!  If you are like me, you may feel like Christmas snuck up on you this year and blink! Exams are done, kids are home, and Santa Claus is loading his sleigh!

After a Thanksgiving table blowout, mom and I vowed that our Christmas lunch should be simple…at least simple-er.  If you are putting your final grocery list together and are still wondering “what to fix” or “what to take,” browse through this list of tried-and-true favorites and add the ingredients to your list!  There are just a few listed here, but be sure to browse the pull-down categories on my homepage for even more great recipes!

Here are a few of our Appetizer favorites…
